Look Fantastic September 2019 “The Birthday Edition” Review
Each box comes with a booklet that includes product information and tips for how to use what you got.
I love keeping Look Fantastic boxes around to store makeup, jewelry, and other important things, because they are always so sturdy and beautiful.
Now, on to the items!
I liked this cleanser immediately! It’s a super heavy gel with a delightful pinky color and a rosehip scent. This cleanser clung to my skin and gave me a deep clean feeling without being drying. It also noticed a slight foaming effect as I washed it off. A little goes a long way, so this tube should last a long time!
Mini Pixi LipLift Max in Honey Sheen, 1 oz. – Retail Value $6.00
Though I really don’t need them, I tend to love lip-plumping glosses. It must be something about that tingle. This is a very pretty shimmering gloss with a champagne look and a strong mint scent. It felt good on my lips and gave them a pretty glossiness. I liked wearing this product both alone and layered over lipstick.
It’s super versatile and easy to wear!
Molton Brown Orange & Bergamot Bath & Shower Gel, 3.3 fl oz. – Estimated Value $10.56 (Buy a 10 fl. oz. bottle for $32.00 here.)
Molton Brown is one of those indulgences I like to leave in my guest bath, so that anyone visiting feels extra pampered during an overnight stay. The bottles also look great next to my clawfoot tub! This shower gel has a scent that I think anyone would love—a delightful, unisex mix of citrus and musk. I’ve found that this brand’s formulas work well as shower gel or for bubble baths.
Caudalie is one of my favorite skincare brands, so I am always thrilled to see it in a box. My eyes have been feeling really dry and cranky lately, because I got some of my tretinoin cream too close to the little delicate corner creases. A luxe cream like this one is overdue. This stuff immediately calmed down any inflammation and restored loads of moisture to my stressed skin. This tube is actually a pretty generous size for such an expensive product, especially because a little goes a long way.
Bubble T Limited Edition Bath Bomb – Retail Value $6.00
It’s actually been a little while since I’ve received a bath bomb in a box. This one feels long overdue. This bath bomb is perfect for celebrating Look Fantastic’s fifth birthday, with its sweet cake scent and rainbow sprinkles!
(Full Size!) Sleek MakeUP Brow Stylist, 0.3 g. – Retail Value $8.11
My last item is a brow pencil with a spoolie end. The tip of the pencil is an angled shape, which makes flicking in individual “hairs” a piece of cake. The spoolie tip is perfect for combing through my brows both before and after penciling them in. Though the pencil I got is their “dark” shade, I found it still worked for me, even though I generally use more of a medium color.
This shade still totally works for an ashy blonde like me.
Here’s the latest issue of Elle UK Magazine, which was included in this box:
The Verdict: Look Fantastic Beauty Box was really good this month, IMO. There wasn’t a single item I disliked or didn’t find useful. The standouts for me were the Caudalie eye cream and Oskia cleanser, but seeing as I’m a skincare addict, that shouldn’t surprise anyone. Molton Brown is an old favorite of mine, and I liked getting to try the Pixi gloss and Sleek pencil. Overall, the value lands somewhere around the $81.37 mark, which is great for a $19 box, especially if you also love the included magazine.
